1995 Chevrolet C1500 W/T 4.3L from North America
The Chevy Work Truck is ready to work for you!
The clutch plate went out when I first purchased it at 114000 miles.
The manual door handles on both sides would stop working until I reseated the metal bar.
The tail lights needed replacing every few months.
Water pump went out at 180000.
This is a nice truck, I would purchase another one in a second.
I used it for work, and it never let me down except for the time when the clutch fork snapped on me in the middle of the drive, but it had 114000 miles on it, and I don't know who drove it before me.
The interior was nice, but not really built for a tall or chubby person. It got about 17 miles per gallon city.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The most reliable long lasting trucks have always been Chevrolet and GMC; together they are the top seller in numbers of all trucks by far.
Got to love the Ford ads, which state they are number one in truck sales... while they use separate Chev and GMC numbers... talk about misleading!
Just check the frame on 1994 and 1995 Chev/GMC trucks in areas where they use road salt.
Check under the driver's feet area, and just before the frame turns upward in front of the rear wheels. Those are the spots to check.
Mine has over 1 million kms on the same engine, with just 2 timing chain replacements!
